The Agr Process Pilot® system with Pilot Profiler® measurement technology helps ensure that the material in the light weighted bottle is distributed according to design and is consistent for the entire production run.
The Agr Process Pilot® system with Pilot Profiler® measurement technology helps ensure that the material in the light weighted bottle is distributed according to design and is consistent for the entire production run.

Agr has introduced the new Lightweight option for the Process Pilot blowmolder management system. The system, with the new option, provides assurance that the limited material available for producing a light weight PET bottle is distributed exactly where it needs to be, and at the appropriate thickness, to ensure proper performance.

According to Agr, the Process Pilot system, with Agr Pilot Profiler measurement technology installed inside the blowmolder, provides a means for manufacturers to accurately measure material distribution on every bottle (to 0.05mm), in real time, and proactively adjust the blowmolder to maintain proper distribution, countering the effect of process variation.

In the push for more sustainable bottles, weights are being reduced even further and, with that, the sidewall thickness of the bottle. In order to process these bottles effectively and control the material distribution, additional measurement accuracy is required, explained the company.

The new Lightweight option, incorporated into the Pilot Profiler measurement component, offered with the Process Pilot system was developed to address this need for even greater measurement accuracy and control on very light bottles.

With this option, a level of control is now available with the Process Pilot system that extends the measurement range to 0.025mm, with an accuracy of +0.01mm for PET bottle sidewall material.

This added functionality delivers greater distribution control on bottles with very thin sidewalls or at specific locations on other types of bottles where precise material management is critical to meet performance and quality requirements.

Agr’s Process Pilot automated blowmolder control systems are operating on over 400 PET bottle production lines. The Process Pilot system is unique in that it manages the blowmolder based on direct bottle measurements, on every bottle produced.

By controlling the blowmolder based on direct feedback from bottle measurements rather than just blowmolder performance indicators, the Agr system can ensure that the final product has the desired quality and performance attributes in spite of environmental, blowmolder or material variations that can occur during the production process.

The Lightweight option is currently available on all new production Process Pilot systems. To achieve these capabilities on existing systems, Agr also offers an upgrade package that can be easily installed in the field.

Agr International Inc. develops and manufactures a full line of laboratory, on-line quality and process management devices for containers and similar products for the plastic, glass and packaging industry.
